Digital Water - Action plan to help UK plc win its share of the $30 billion digital revolution in water.

Address from our chairman

Water is essential for the very existence of life, it keeps us and the ecosystems that we depend on alive and healthy.

Water is fundamental to our industry, economy and environment. At a time when our planet is facing an unprecedented combination of water security and resilience challenges, The UK Water Partnership provides leadership and a unified approach to the UK’s efforts to contribute to the development of sustainable solutions, and to ensure that the UK’s experts, innovators and entrepreneurs are at the forefront of the global response. - Rt Hon Richard Benyon
